Master of Science (MS)



Biomedical Professions Curriculum



The Biomedical Professions major is designed to enhance a student’s overall academic qualifications.  All classes are preparatory coursework for medical school. 

Students will participate in foundational graduate courses that will help them to understand and use the primary literature of Biomedical Sciences.  In addition to graduate level courses, students will also work alongside first-year medical school students at the DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (DCOM) in areas such as Medical Gross Anatomy and Histology.

A total of thirty graduate credit hours are the minimum requirement. Typical course schedules are listed below as an example.
